This beta of AdGuard for Android is a bit of an outlier, in the sense that it’s the third one for v3.3. Usually, by that point changelogs become shorter, big juicy tasks get left for later. The closer we’re to release, the more we focus on fixing existing bugs rather than creating new ones 😄

Not this time, though! We still got a lot left in us: new purchase flow, some serious ad blocking quality improvements. And of course, there’s no escaping the chores: multiple bugfixes, crash hunting etc.

[Added] An option to purchase a new license via the app #2897

We’ve already made it so you don’t need to leave the app to link your personal account, and from now on you can even purchase a license without ever minimizing AdGuard. Either when you start the app for the first time, or when you decide it’s time to activate Premium, you’ll face a familiar but different screen:

The app will offer you to choose the preferred type of license and its duration and will ask you to enter your email. So basically the same actions that you’d perform on the website but without extra clicks and new tabs in the browser. One thing to add is that you can’t renew or upgrade your license this way yet, but hey. There’s more versions to come.

Ad blocking

  • [Changed] Whale browser has been added to the known browsers list #3175
  • [Fixed] “Exclude from filtering” button behavior #3052
  • [Fixed] Google Now can’t be updated with “Always-on-VPN” enabled #3039
  • [Fixed] AdGuard Extra enables automatically when there’s an available update #3216
  • [Improved] DNS filtering to block cloaked trackers #3228
  • [Improved] “Block phishing and malware” option now is enabled automatically when Premium gets activated #3249
  • [Improved] Now AdGuard can block AAAA requests in networks without IPv6 interface #3197

UI

  • [Added] “Failed to move the certificate” notification for rooted devices with Magisk firmware #2941
  • [Changed] AdGuard now remembers the selected type of data to display in Apps Management #3140
  • [Fixed] Search on Apps Managements screen is working slow #2951

It seems that the first AdGuard v3.3 beta has opened the floodgates, and now there’s no power in the world to stop our developers from releasing more and more. Only one week has passed since, and we’re already presenting the next one. This time, our designers had a say too, and this is reflected in several UI-related changes that you won’t be able to miss.

[Changed] The onboarding process #2895

We sure love us some redesign! This time, we revamped the onboarding sequence (basically, what you see when you launch the app for the first time). Key changes:

  • An option to choose a ‘quick’ or a ‘long’ configuration: you’ll be asked to either make only key decisions or set most of the settings manually
  • New option to allow sending some technical and interaction information that will help us further improve AdGuard
  • Better graphics!

[Added] HTTPs filtering dialog #2967

HTTPS filtering is a cornerstone of AdGuard for Android. Without the permission to filter the HTTPS protocol the ad blocking power of AdGuard is severely crippled. That’s why we walk an extra mile to emphasize to users its importance.

We show a notification on the main AdGuard screen if HTTPS filtering is not enabled yet, and when you click on it, we now show a simple yet informative GIF that explains how HTTPS filtering works and why we recommend so strongly to turn it on.

  • [Added] “Refresh license status” button #2988
  • [Added] TLS v1.3 support for custom DNS servers #3132
  • [Added] Restore purchases button: a notification if there’s nothing to restore #2990
  • [Changed] Phrasing on activation screens #3141
  • [Changed] Internet connection availability checking method #3095
  • [Fixed] Pressing the “Buy one more license” button closes the current screen #3136
  • [Fixed] Some buttons in the first start dialog boxes can’t be seen on certain device models #3114
  • [Fixed] The switch for Custom filters incorrectly represents the state of the filter group #3119
  • [Fixed] Compatibility issues
  • [Improved] CoreLibs has been updated to v1.5.84 #3143

We hope you were missing our beta versions that can put to shame some releases because we have a laundry list of changes, fixes and improvements. A good portion of it refers to UI, but there are a few performance enhancements and such.

[Added] New activation flow #2901

Not a lot of Android users had a chance to see our AdGuard for iOS app, so they likely don’t know about the system that’s being used there for Premium features activation. But it recommended itself as one that’s convenient for users, so we adopted it for AdGuard for Android too.

As you can see, there are now two options: enter a license key directly, or log into AdGuard personal account. If your account has a license key that can be used to activate Premium, it will get picked up automatically after you enter credentials.

Ad blocking

  • [Added] Preset Stealth Mode settings configurations #2625
  • [Added] abp:subscribe and adguard:subscribe links interception #2918
  • [Added] subscribe.adblockplus.org links interception #2930
  • [Fixed] DNS User filter import bug #2972
  • [Fixed] Some legit hosts lists are not recognized as valid #2982
  • [Fixed] Error while checking updates of resources added from the local storage #2997
  • [Fixed] Quick Settings does not allow to choose a different Privacy protection Level #2768
  • [Improved] AdGuard now uses on-the-fly methods of applying settings changes without restarting the protection when possible #2881

Disclaimer: AdGuard for Android is not an open source project. We use Github as an open bug tracker for users to see what developers are working on.

Two months of development are rarely enough to come up with an update that big. Despite that, AdGuard 3.2 for Android is packed with major new features, not mentioning the long list of minor changes that goes on and on.

There’s something for both experienced users (userscripts support, DNS user filter) and for absolute beginners (feature discovery) to help them make their first steps. And everyone will equally appreciate the improved stability and speed that come with CoreLibs filtering engine update.

[Added] Feature discovery #2459

We try to position AdGuard for Android as an app you can technically turn on and forget about it, but that can offer so much more if you spend some time to explore it. To help new users not get lost in many many features we added over the years, we'll now highlight the most important UI elements and give short tooltips that explain what they are all about. This will only happen when you visit this or that screen for the first time, of course, otherwise, it would become old very soon.

[Added] Userscripts support #34

Userscripts (we also call them extensions) are basically mini-programs written in Javascript that extend the functionality of one or more websites. Usually, you'd need some special userscript manager to add them, and it's traditionally more of a desktop thing. But with AdGuard everything is possible! Now you can add any userscripts by URL or load them from a file, and AdGuard will serve as a userscript manager and take care of the rest. Go to Settings > Extensions to enable some of the preinstalled extensions or to add custom userscripts. By the way, you can tap on any userscript from among the added ones to see more details and to reinstall or delete it.

[Added] DNS User filter and custom hosts files support #2803, #1851

This is very similar to the regular User filter for custom filtering rules, but for DNS requests. You can find it at Settings > DNS Filtering > DNS Requests blocking. DNS User filter supports two types of syntax: a limited portion of AdGuard syntax and "hosts" syntax. More about it in our Knowledge Base.

Another DNS-related feature is hosts files support. AdGuard users now can add any hosts lists as custom DNS filters. Again, this option is on the Settings > DNS Filtering > DNS Requests blocking screen.

[Fixed] IPv6 filtering doesn't work in automatic proxy mode #2579

Not a new feature, but a very important fix. Many users with rooted devices use AdGuard in automatic proxy mode, and it turned out that IPv6 filtering wasn't working in this mode. In this version, the problem is fixed.

Ad blocking

  • [Added] "Disable AMP" userscript #2815
  • [Added] Firefox preview has been added to the list of browsers #2958
